Dragon's blood for great skin?

It's not just a fancy made-up name by Rodial to draw attention in case you were wondering. Dragon's Blood is a tree found in the Amazon and the latex from the tree sap looks like blood hence the surreal name.

The Dragon's Blood Skin Care range by Rodial has hit stores in March and contains quite a few products like a face gel, eye gel, toner, cleanser and so on.

Coming back to the characteristics of Dragon's blood, it's actually known for treating the skin and healing wounds, acting as a 'second skin' barrier since years.

Along with the natural characteristics of the ingredient, Rodial has other ingredients included in the concoction such as Hyaluronic Acid, known for its effective use especially in French skin care, which aids in plumping and sculpting the skin.

The packaging as with most Rodial products is savvy and neat, with a pump dispenser for hygienic reasons and it also makes sure you only use what's needed as compared to a screw top pot.

The product itself is a gel like consistency which dries to a velvety, matte finish when spread all over the skin. It acts like a primer, filler or as a lifting and plumping treatment for the skin.

Yes it actually does work on reducing any fine lines, saggy skin around the eyes and making concealer glide on much better.

I would say it's more suitable for those 35 plus for its effective properties and price tag however if you are willing to splurge £40 on an eye cream which will last you not more than 2 months, age is no barrier.

Rumour has it that Lady Gaga is a big fan of the range and why wouldn't she, I am sure the eccentric name and the inclusion of 'blood' in it must have drawn her towards it immediately!
